Justin Bieber Is Banned From My Household

It's November... which means the holidays are getting closer and closer... which means that it's only a matter of time before we will have to purge ourselves of our dark, dirty secrets and start anew on January 1st with resolutions that will make us a better person and blah blah blah...

So I have a terrible, embarrassing, horrifying confession to make. After years and years of making fun of people who sing karaoke... I finally tried it.

And I loved it.

I feel like such a hypocrite.

It always seemed so uncool to me... why would I want to be subjected to people who can't sing while simultaneously embarrassing myself due to the fact that I can't sing either? And then... something surprising happened. I was at a party at a friend's house and after we had all had a few drinks, he busted out a karaoke machine.

Had I known this was going to be that kind of party, I might not have attended. But I was already there and I was already a bit tipsy. I was surprised to find that many of my friends have decent singing voices, but even those who didn't, managed to rock that karaoke mic right. So when a pal grabbed me and pulled me to the front of the crowd to join her in a hilarious drunken rendition of 'Poker Face' I couldn't resist. Fueled by liquid courage (and the fact that I was surrounded by trusted friends) I put on a performance that Lady Gaga might have cringed at, but that resulted in thunderous applause from the room.

My singing makes Lady Gaga make this face.

Of course, there's still a lot about karaoke that I don't love. There's always going to be someone who will insist on singing something terrible like 'The Greatest Love of All' or 'Single Ladies' or anything by Justin Bieber.

So I've decided that I need to stay away from karaoke in bars - where the public can sing anything they want and laugh at me, instead of with me - and only sing karaoke in private. Since I can't expect my friend to host a party every single time I get the urge to belt out 'Tik Tok' I've decided to invest in my own home rockin' karaoke system. I will only allow guests to pick karaoke music that I have hand-selected and pre-approved for their singing pleasure. (Sorry, but no Justin Bieber in my home!)

So can anyone recommend a good machines for karaoke for me to check out? And what are some of your favorite songs/moments singing karaoke? Add a link to a funny video of yourself singing karaoke in the comments and maybe we'll post it, as long as it's not a Justin Bieber song.

[Editor's Note: The rest of the ESC does not necessarily support Eve's stance that karaoke is not uncool. But we'll give her the benefit of the doubt until we have a chance to see hear her in action. But we do agree with the Ban-on-Bieber.]

"Somebody Told Me" is totally awesome to do for karaoke. And anything that is super difficult, the weirder the better.

Eve you sing your heart out without shame. I love karoke and our family tradition is to sing karoke to celebrate Canada day before we see the fireworks. It's fun to get a little silly and let your inner rock star out. I do think that Beiber should absolutely be banned and I have banned the playing of his so-called music in my household. I believe that Usher owes us for introducing his no talent ass to the world.

Realising I'm REALLY late to this party, but potentially just in time for New Year's Eve, KaraFun is a pretty good alternative to a karaoke machine, particularly if you want to be able to control the songs! It takes a little time to program new things, but you can add in WHATEVER YOU WANT. It's pretty awesome, and I'm pretty sure it's free to download. At least it used to be.
